As a five-year resident of the Blackhawk area and a 13-year resident of Pflugerville, I like to keep an eye on the market values here in the area. When the toll roads opened about a year and a half ago, the prices started trending upward and they certainly have continued to appreciate. As a fellow homeowner, this stuff is important to me, too!
Currently, there are 9 homes available on the MLS in the Fairways, with an average asking price of $274,584. The average square footage for these homes is 2,968, for an average price per square foot of $93.57. This is a gain of about $3.00/sq. ft. over last quarter.
Over the past quarter (January through March 2008), there were 5 sales closed within the Fairways of Blackhawk. The average listing price was $205,180 and the average sales price was $201,400. This means that homes sold for approximately 98.16% of the list price. The average number of days on the market was 70, which is about 16 days less than the average for the Austin MLS. The square footage of the homes sold averaged 2,354, and the price per square foot for the sales was $88.00. This is about $6/sq. ft. higher than the previous quarter.
In other area news:
